I wish I knew what was going on with this figure, and Droids Fett. 3PO comes out in December, and it's been four months and nothing.
At this point, I highly doubt target and hasbro even have an idea of what's going on...or even care to know.

It's amazing how Target doesn't know how pre-orders work, or something.....been waiting on R2 and Fett since ****ing Sept.

The R2's lasted about 6 mins after I posted before disappearing.

I've seen TVC Koska, Axe, Mayfeld and Droids Fett and R2 all as available for preorder tonight. They must have had a lot of cancellations and/or card re-authorization issues that freed up slots.

interesting....EVERYTHING ELSE but R2 in this posting has reached customers. HABSRO NEEDS TO FIX THIS! JAYSON, if you're able to, can you comment on this (and other outstanding pre-orders)? -don't get me wrong, totally appreciate EVERYTHING you do and provide for the collecting community-- we ALL do....but these extra long delays and long stretch preorders (totally not your fault) is like over stretching a rubber band...getting thin, weak, gonna break and sting a lot of collectors.

I also managed to get an R2 (and a second Fett) yesterday by visiting a Target, and asking about the figures. I was told that they had just come in that morning.

The only thing that seems poorly done with these Droids figures are the smooth, detail-less coins.

Thank goodness for small favors.... It's getting beyond ludicrous if you can't get your 6 month old preorder before people finding it in stores, and now their online available date is after the supposed on shelf date. lol

I got two of these, and the one I decided to open turned out to be a clunker. The middle foot doesn't go all the way down, the periscope is loose in its hole, and for awhile there was something loose clanking around inside it. I'd love to figure out how to safely take this apart so I can make some adjustments.

This mold would be fine if it wasn't for the periscope-middle foot connection, forcing you to either have a wedge-shaped hole in it's head, or a jangly periscope sticking out.

I have an extra R2 and Fett. Not AFA quality but very decent. Cost plus shipping for the pair. I can take Paypal using F&F. PM with your zip code if interested so I can figure exact shipping. I ship double boxed.20220525_184441.jpg
